Carmel Murphy’s 5th/6th class with Artist Jane Groves
Session 10.. In the clouds..
Today we worked on finishing our second cloud and on decorating the forms. It was decided by the class that they wanted to incorporate some natural materials.Half the class went on a foraging mission ( taking care not to steal any daffodils from the school garden!) while the remainder worked on covering the clouds ready for the additions to be embedded in the paper.
The children also worked on creating wishes which we decided would be hung from the clouds, these ranged from aspirations for the environment to ´I wish my dad would give up smoking´ to wanting to win the lottery! the children wrote and illustrated onto card and then these were attached with string.
